What did you want to be when you grew up?

An Olympic swimmer. I used to swim competitively, and I couldn’t say I wanted to be a pro lacrosse player, because that wasn’t a thing yet.

What was your senior quote in your high school yearbook?

“See you on ESPN.” Wrote it as a joke. Didn’t think it would ever actually happen!

If you owned a boat, what would you name it?

“Dreamer.” My sister and I have matching “Dream On” tattoos. I’ve always been a big advocate for chasing your dreams. 

What type of animal would best describe your style of play?

Bat. Because of the eye black that I wear, maybe?

Who is your role model?

She might be younger than me, but I’ve always looked up to my sister Taryn, for always being true to who she is. 

What is your favorite inspirational quotation?

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” — Dr. Seuss. 

What’s your favorite sports movie?

“Miracle.” You’re lying if you say you don’t get chills watching it.

What’s the most played song on your favorite playlist?

“Centuries” by Fall Out Boy — my goal song at Stony Brook. Always tugs on the heart strings.

What are your pregame rituals?

Put on my eye black and eat a handful a Skittles.

Overtime (from Marie McCool):
If there was a sixth WPLL team, what would you name it and why?

Grit. The WPLL team names each stand for different qualities that are important in the message we want to send to our fanbase.

Double Overtime  (from @matthewleexxi on Instagram):
Best LI bagel spot? What’s your order?

You can go pretty much anywhere for a good bagel on Long Island. Bagel Boss has always been one of my go-to spots for any kind of bagel or egg sandwich.

Pose a question for our next subject.

If you could go on stage at anyone’s concert, who would it be?

Catch Kylie Ohlmiller and her U.S. teammates in action Saturday (3:30 p.m. EST on Lax Sports Network) against a WPLL select team at the Presidents Cup in West Palm Beach, Fla.
